I’m firmly in ODM, Sossion declares after UDA links

Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Nominated MP Wilson Sossion has rubbished reports suggesting he has ditched the party for United Democratic Alliance (UDA).

Sossion, the immediate former Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) Secretary-General, termed as “lies” social media rumours linking him to UDA, a political party associated with Deputy President William Ruto.

“Treat other reports as inaccurate propaganda and lies!” Sossion said in a tweet.

But while he has declared his intention to run for the Bomet Senate seat, currently occupied by Christopher Andrew Langat, Sossion, however, did not disclose which political party he will use as a vehicle in the 2022 General Election.

“The fact that I shall vie for Bomet Senate seat in the next election does not mean I have left ODM. I am a very, very loyal member of ODM,” he added.

The MP was responding to reports that emerged on social media on Thursday, August 26 indicating he had quit the Orange party and was to vie for the Bomet Senatorial seat on a UDA ticket.

Sossion stepped down as KNUT Secretary-General on June 25, a day to KNUT elections, to focus on his legislative duties.
